We’re firmly entering the summer months now filled with outdoor festivals and holidays to far flung places. We’re currently in Rock, Cornwall – home of Sharps Brewery and everywhere we turn we’re seeing canned cocktails, new and exciting beers as well as these fantastic aluminum cups made by Envirocup, a company who say they are the ultimate solution to significantly reducing Single Use Plastic at the thousands of events that take place in the UK every year. Environmentally friendly cups are certainly the way forward (and we can confirm that these work excellently on the beach!).

This year Tequio Tequila Cocktails became the world’s first canned cocktails to reach the Stratosphere. Powered by a high-altitude weather balloon, the Tequio probe reached an altitude of 52,000 ft before returning to Earth on a voyage that lasted 5 hours and 17 minutes. While Tequio always recommends serving their canned cocktails ice-cold, it’s hard to beat the chill that comes from a near-space flight. Read more about the inter galactic mission here.
